About this book

This is the first book to be devoted exclusively to rare tumors in children and adolescents, and its aim is to provide up-to-date information on their diagnosis and clinical management. The opening section addresses general issues including epidemiology, risk factors/etiology, biology and genetics, early detection, and screening. It also discusses solutions to assist in the management of rare tumors, such as international networking and internet platforms. In the second section, specific malignancies are described, with practical guidance on diagnostic workup, multimodal therapy, follow-up, and adverse effects. Discussion of differential diagnosis encompasses both frequent and rare tumor types, which should enable the clinician to take rare entities into account during the diagnostic assessment. Each chapter goes on to provide detailed therapeutic guidelines for specific rare tumors. The authors are a multidisciplinary group of specialists who have dedicated themselves to this group of tumors.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The most important feature of this well-written book is its description of some of the rare tumors seen in the pediatric population that are not described in standard textbooks. The authors wish to describe these rare tumors, many of which go undiagnosed, to emphasize the importance of taking them into account while making a diagnosis. … The book is appropriate for residents, fellows, and even practicing clinicians. … overall this is a good, concise review of some very rare pediatric tumors and malignancies.” (Surabhi Batra, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2013)

“A very well illustrated text, easy to read and very informative. The quality of the photographs in particular are first class; enabling the reader to gain insight into the sometimes devastating and tragic problems encountered by this group of young patients. It has drawn together a wealth of experience from the world’s leading paediatric-oncologists. I would recommend its use to both paediatricians and oncologists. This book is a must for the library!” (Karin Baria, Oncology News, Vol. 8 (1), March/April, 2013)
